My cervix is soft and I'm thinned out 1 cm dialted...



I'm craving pineapple. And I haven't eaten it because I ate it with Ava and went into labor the next day. So I'm really paranoid about it happening again but I'm really really really craving a whole pineapple.




Lol probably the dumbest question ever but is it ok to eat.



I'm 34 weeks

Yes. You would literally have to eat more pineapple than it would take to make you sick for it to do anything. I also believe you have to eat the actual core...

This. If simply eating pineapple sets you off then you would go into labor anyways. I'd just enjoy the pineapple.

I think it's something like 7 pineapples to ingest all of the necessary labor kick starting enzymes.

I ate my first pineapple ever with DD and my water broke the next day I just ate the inside no core or nothing. I was 39/5 d when my water broke.

It worked for me but I actually did not know pineapple did that until I was at the hospital the next day and I was talking about how I had the weirdest craving for it. Because I hate pineapple. Lol but I'm craving the sweetness from it.

Honestly, probably just coincidink ;) What the enzymes are said to do is produce contractions and ripen the cervix. Chow down mama just be warned that too much will burn your tongue blaaaah!!!

You were 39w5d. It was time for her to be born. It wasn't the pineapple.

More like your body was just ready.



I ate pineapple like it was going out of style my whole pregnancy. My OB said I would have to eat like 7-8 in a sitting to get any kind of effect and before that I would end up puking from eating too much
